Homes Tasmania is building housing opportunities for eligible Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people through Tasmania's social housing portfolio. Providing access to dedicated, affordable and appropriate social housing contributes to improved health and wellbeing outcomes.
To be eligible for Aboriginal housing, at least one household member must have confirmed eligibility as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person as outlined in Eligibility for Tasmanian Government Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs and services.
Applicants must complete an eligibility form or be found eligible under the previous Tasmanian Government Policy on Eligibility for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander specific programs and services. Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander applicants must also be eligible for social housing.
Aboriginal housing properties in Tasmania are owned by Homes Tasmania and managed by social housing providers.
